We had friends come over to our new house for dinner and I wanted to make a batch of fresh dinner rolls to go with our meal. I used my Whole Wheat Dinner Roll recipe but decided to add two heads of roasted garlic to the dough. I am still getting used to the new oven so the top of the rolls got a little extra brown but they were still light, fluffy, and delicious! The garlic gave the rolls a nice subtle garlic flavor that we all, even the kids, enjoyed.
